Exhibition on Roundswell waste plans
Public invited to have say on county council’s draft Devon Waste Plan,
PEOPLE in North Devon are to be formally consulted on controversial plans for future waste management options at Roundswell, on the outskirts of Barnstaple.
An exhibition in Barnstaple Library next week will outline potential site options to deal with the sorting, recycling and disposal of waste.
It will form part of a countywide consultation on Devon County Council’s draft Devon Waste Plan, a blueprint for waste disposal and energy recovery from waste for the next 20 years.
People will be able to chat with council officers and give their views at the event on Thursday, May 24, from 2pm-8pm.

The council said that not all of the possible site options would be included in the final version of the plan and decisions would be informed by the response to the consultation.
It said any additional potential sites raised as a result of public feedback would also be considered as the waste plan develops ahead of further consultation in 2013.
Councillor Roger Croad, cabinet member for environment, said: “We’re keen for everyone to get involved and give us their views on these current site options.
“This is just the latest stage of the plan and nothing has been decided, so the responses we receive will play an important part in helping inform the plan as it continues to develop.”
Anyone who cannot attend the public exhibition can still take part in the consultation online at http://devoncc.limehouse.co.uk/portal/
